I am sure many of you are aware of the increasing number of confirmed cases of Coronavirus in Devon. We are fortunate that the numbers in Devon continue to be much lower than elsewhere in the country but we must not become complacent. Parish and Town Councils are well placed in their communities to provide local leadership and communicate key public health messages such as HAND – FACE – SPACE, to assist in keeping numbers low.
Working with our colleagues in Devon County Council and Devon Communities Together, we have developed briefing papers to support you over the coming months. It contains links to key documents such as the Local Outbreak Management Plan, sources of advice and information, explains the role of the District Council and ideas on how you can prepare and assist your community in the event of further outbreaks in your locality.
